Here are some Common Workout Mistakes that people make when spending time in the No 1 Fitness Centre in Cross Hills, near Skipton. By eliminating these mistakes, you could achieve your goals more quickly with less time in the Gym.
Performing Isolated Exercises in our Gym near Skipton, for example Isolated Bicep Curls, are not an efficient way to build lean muscle and do not result in a large Calorie Burn. They don’t stimulate enough muscle fibres and are not the most effective way of adding definition. They often provide us with a movement we are unlikely to use in everyday life. The muscles are used separate from each other, leading to a lack in functional strength. More efficient exercises can be adopted like the dead lift. This will exercise multiple muscle groups, improving strength and burning the maximum amount of calories.
Mistake #2: Crunches for 6-pack abs.
Excessive amounts of traditional crunches will not give your abs definition. This is something we see a lot of in the gym near Skipton. Crunches often put a greater strain on the neck than the abdominals. They lack efficiency and do not provide the amount of strain needed on the abdominals, for them to increase in strength. A more effective ab exercise would be the Janda Situp. Even if you spend an excessive amount of time in our gym in Cross Hills, and do manage to squeeze out enough crunches to increase the strength and size of your abdominals, they will not be toned and defined without the stubborn layer of stomach fat being removed. To do this you need to do more fat burning exercises and perhaps start a diet plan.
Mistake #3: Monotony for Progress.
Unfortunately, doing the same exercises, with the same weight for an extended period of time, will not allow you to keep progressing. This mistake is particularly true of women, who don’t want to increase the weight of the exercises they do, because they want to minimise the size of their muscles. The reality is, that with the small amounts of testosterone occurring naturally in the female body, muscle gain will be minimal no matter what weights are used. If you want to keep progressing with your workouts, and keep up the calorie burn and lean muscle gain, you need to add variety. There are a number of ways to do this:
No 1 Fitness Centre and Gym in Cross Hills, near Skipton, has a huge variety of free weights, resistance machines and cardio machines for you to use.
Mistake #4:Long Workouts for Better, Faster Results
Longer Workouts do not necessarily provide you with better, faster results. When you have been in the gym in Cross Hills a long time, you cannot perform exercises to your full potential. This makes the exercises less effective, and you are more likely to sustain an injury. A more efficient way to gain strength and definition is use a heavier weight and perform less repetitions on each exercise. Longer workouts can actually have a detrimental affect on lean muscle gain. They can lead to muscle catabolism as your muscles get broken down to provide energy. To avoid this, aim for a workout of around 40 minutes in length.
